In prehistorical times this once Illyrian town was called Scardona, and later on it became a roman municipality of which the ruins of its buildings and waterworks can be seen today as well as epigraphical monuments. Throughout the centuries Skradin has been demolished many times as a result of fighting between feudalists and yet it was always rejuvenated by new settlers. The remains of a Venetian tower and its surrounding walls as well as a Turkish fortress which was built later on both overlook the town of Skradin. During the era of national rule a preroman church was built in which stone fragments with woven motifs were used for decoration. The renaissance painter Juraj Culinovic and well-known organ maker Petar Nakic-Nakini were both born in Skradin.
The marina in Skradin is a quiet quay located in a deep cove at the mouth of the river Krka, near the National Park of Krka. It has around 180 moorings and is open throughout the whole year.
